Grilled black pepper Chicken


Whipped this simple chicken dish for dinner last weekend.  Very easy to prepare, more flavourful if the chicken had been marinated overnight, which I did.



Heat up the grill pan with a little bit of oil, once it's hot, dump in the chicken pieces devoid of marinade.
Stirfry the colourful capsicums and onion with a bit of oil, dish up.  In the same pan add in the chicken marinade, sauces,  water, thickening and you're done!









You are most welcome to join me ....... just dig in!

Ingredients
  • 3 chicken legs, deboned and skin removed
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 2 capsicums, cut into wedges
Seasoning for the chicken
  • 1  Tbsp oyster sauce
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/2  tsp light soya sauce
  • 1/2  tsp salt
  • 1/8  tsp pepper
  • 4 pips garlic smashed
Black pepper sauce
  • 1/2  tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1  Tbsp oyster sauce
  • 1/4  cup water
  • 1  tsp cornflour + 1.1/2  Tbsp water to thicken
Preparation
  1. Marinate the chicken legs with the above seasoning for a few hours, or preferably overnight in the refrigerator.  Take them out at least an hour before cooking.
  2. Heat up a grill pan with a little bit of oil and once the pan is red hot, add in the chicken pieces, reduce the heat to maintain the temperature, and let the chicken cook  for a few minutes.  Leave any marinade in the bowl for later use.   Once the edges of the meat start to brown, then flip over to the other side and grill for a further few minutes.
  3. Dish up onto serving plates.
  4. In another pan, heat up some oil and toss in the onion slices and capsicums, stir-fry and dish out.
  5. In the same pan, put in the chicken marinade, add in the ground black pepper, oyster sauce and water, let it simmer.  Fine tune to taste and add in the thickening.
  6. Arrange the onions and capsicums onto the serving plates with the chicken pieces and pour over the sauce.
  7. Serve immediately and enjoy.

    Thanks for visiting my blog. I didn't really time the cooking. I used a grill pan, so once the red indicator on the pan is red hot, then lower the heat to medium low and put in the meat. Just watch it and once the edges of the meat are slightly brown, then you can flip over to the other side. Yes, it should be medium to medium low.

Herbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Gao

H erbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Ga o literally translated means 'Tortoise Jelly' is one of my family's favourite desserts.  It's much more economical to prepare this at home for you'll need to fork out between Rm 9 to Rm 11 for a bowl of this cooling dessert in any of those herbal tea outlets.  This soothing jelly, served chilled, is supposed to be able to help reduce our body heat, helps to get rid of toxins and is believed to be good for the skin thus culminating a healthier complexion.

Braised Pork Belly with Mui Choy ~ 梅菜焖五花肉

Mui Choy is preserved mustard greens and there are two types, one is salty while the other is sweet.  There are many ways of cooking mui choy with pork belly.  Instead of braising, you can steam it with minced pork but here I am using only the sweet mui choy and I braised the pork belly with it.  This is a flavourful dish and you can serve it with plain rice or plain porridge. Braised Pork Belly with Mui Choy   ~    梅菜焖五花肉 Ingredients  400 gm pork belly cut into bite size 100 gm  preserved sweet mui choy 3 cloves of garlic 2 slices ginger Seasoning for the pork belly 1 Tbsp dark soya sauce 1/4 Tbsp sugar 1/4 Tbsp sesame oil 1/4 Tbsp oyster sauce 1/2 tsp pepper 1/8 tsp light soya sauce Method Season the pork belly for about an hour or more.  Set aside. Soak the mui choy for 45 mins., rinse and squeeze dry.  Cut into slices Heat some oil in the wok, fry the mui choy.  Add in the ginger slices.  Stir-fry. Add in the pork  belly, fry for a while and

Eel soup

This is an ABC soup with a difference.  Yes, there's fish in this soup ..... added a block of eel in it.  Curiosity was what prompted me to cook this soup.  I asked the fishmonger what is the best way to prepare this fish and he said that this eel makes a very tasty soup and I can't agree  more! Sweet and tasty soup with no fishy smell at all! Recipe for Eel Soup Ingredients 350 gm eel 2 carrots, cut into cubes 2 tomatoes,cut into wedges 3 onions, cut into wedges 2.5 lt of water 20  white peppercorns, crushed Seasalt to taste Method Clean up the fish, set aside. Put the water into a pot, bring to a boil and add in the carrots, tomatoes, onions and peppercorns. Simmer for a while and add in the eel. Cover, lower the heat to medium low and let the soup simmer for about 1.1/2 hours. Add salt to taste. Ladle and serve immediately. I'm sharing this recipe with  Recipe Box # 30  hosted by Bizzy Bakes
